Registration Notes

  • To keep the gender enrollments equal for the Youth Ballroom Dance Camp, we have closed registration to FEMALE participants who are not signing up with a male registrant. MALE participants may sign up as just themselves or with a FEMALE partner, but FEMALE participants must sign up with a MALE registrant. This does not mean both will be partners throughout the camp. Partners vary with classes and levels. This registration requirement is to help keep the numbers of males and females equal to ensure a better camp experience for the participants. If we reach a point where the number of males equals or outnumbers the females, we will open up single participant enrollment to females again.
    • MALES: Register online or by phone or as walk-ins. If you have a female registrant who would like to sign up with you, please have information for both yourself and your female registrant ready at the time of registration.
    • FEMALES: ​To register immediately with your male registrant, please call the Registration Office at 801-422-8925, between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on weekdays. Please have information and payment ready for BOTH of you at the time you call.
    • FEMALE WAITING LIST: For those females who are not able to find a male registrant, we have a Waiting List. As openings become available in the camp, we will call those females on the list in the order in which they were placed on it. To be put on the Waiting List, please call Conferences and Workshops at (801-422-7589) or (801-422-8713), or email us at dancecamps@byu.edu  with your name, email address, and phone number.
  • A full refund (minus $25 nonrefundable) will be granted to all cancellations requested by 4:00 p.m. July 7, 2017 (one month before the workshop begins). No housing refunds are available after this date, though partial refunds for the workshop may be available on a case-by-case basis. Please send an email regarding your situation to: dancecamps@byu.edu
  • Full tuition is due at the time of registration. No deposits will be accepted.
